      • "The AS-2 will be released later this month and we will begin taking orders for it. The AS-2 has a very refined sound signature with beautiful aesthetic options that will be pleasing to both musicians and audiophiles alike. The AS-2 uses a 15mm dynamic driver full range and a very unique "next generation" dual BA tweeter design unlike any BA before. The hybrid combination with unique placement of the BAs compliments the qualities of each and thus will deliver a sound signature sure to please a wide audience. Stay tuned for the upcoming release and photos that should start hitting the web soon..."
